Featured Customer | Industrial Lighting Adds Unique Machine Age Chic
Country music and the Grand Old Opry may spring to mind when you think of Nashville, but thanks to Josh Billue, co-owner of JR Facility Management, there are plenty of musical options and venues to explore in this capital city. “Our business model revolves around repurposing warehouse space into music venues and event spaces,” Josh says. “We host more than 80 concerts and 50 events a year with clients ranging from Dodge to Sirius/XM and artists ranging from Garth Brooks to the Chainsmokers.” Josh notes that the industrial type feel of these old warehouse spaces creates an interesting and unique experience. ...

Professional's Corner | Brass Wall Sconces Offer Dramatic Style in Tight Space
As hard as I try, my nightstand always overflows. This small, but oh-so-functional piece of furniture holds the iHome, my stack of nighttime reading, a notepad and pen, plus a lamp. Then I spotted this blog post by Brooke Christen over on Nesting with Grace. Brass wall sconces not only free up space on the night stand, but they offer an elegant statement in Brooke’s master bedroom. “Our bedroom is on the smallish side,” Brooke says. “It measures about 11′ x 12′ without much room for night stands.” Brooke has lived in her 1950s-era Connecticut home for almost two years. Although the room was painted almost immediately, it... Read More

Steampunk-Inspired Industrial Lighting with a Vintage Twist
If you’re a devoted follower of Houzz, a reader of design blogs, or even a Pinterest addict (yes, we know you are), then you’ve probably noticed that the days of matchy-matchy design are long gone.

By combining an industrial mounting with classic Ball jars, we’ve created wall lights that marry vintage and modern styles into one happy and beautiful union. ... Read More

Guest Blogger | When Old Meets New: Vintage Touches for the Contemporary Home
Living in a contemporary home and appreciating history don’t have to be mutually exclusive. In fact, the real design magic happens when old meets new, or when a vintage aesthetic gets a mod twist. The marriage of past and present is an important part of the Barn Light Electric ethos, which, with the help of highly skilled American artisans, has spent nearly a decade reviving the lost American art form of hand-spun porcelain lighting. Today, when most have abandoned this craft for less-expensive manufacturing methods, BLE is the only company in America producing traditional porcelain enamel lighting made for the present-day lifestyle. ...

Featured Customer | Industrial Pendants for Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover
One of the best ways to find inspiration for your home design and remodeling projects is to tap into the world of home dècor blogs. You can easily find other homeowners who are tackling similar projects, see lots of before-and-after photos, and read about the good, the bad, and the ugly of home renovation.

When it was time to tackle the kitchen, Christina, who was expecting her second baby at the time, wanted to turn her dark and cramped space into... Read More

Alabax Inspired Lighting Offers Classic Look with Updated Options
Back in the day, it was all about the quality. That’s the number one reason why the founders of Barn Light Electric used to scour estate sales and old buildings looking for vintage lighting. The companies that created lighting back in the early 20th century did not scrimp on materials or use cheap labor to save a buck. Companies like Pass & Seymour that created classic Alabax Lighting Fixtures, porcelain ceramic lights crafted to be attractive, simple, easy to clean, and, above all, long lasting. ... Read More
